The condition of a 22-year-old woman sent to the emergency room Monday after a single-car crash has improved.

Medical College of Georgia Hospital spokeswoman Denise Parrish said Jenna Victoria Sevigny, of Evans, is now in fair condition. Just a day after the wreck, she was listed as critical.

Sevigny was found on North Belair Road about 3 a.m. Monday hanging halfway out the rear windshield of her car, which had split in two, said Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris in an e-mail.

Authorities believe Sevigny was traveling north when the car drifted off the shoulder of the road. Sevigny likely overcorrected and went off the road on the opposite side, police said.

Morris said the car slid about 100 feet when it hit a pine tree and broke in half, with the rear section sliding another 25 feet.

Morris said Sevigny wasn’t wearing her seatbelt.
